Chris Froome (Team Sky), overall winner: “It's just incredible. Today in the finale I figured this would probably be the only time in my life to try and win the points classification in a Grand Tour. We gave it everything and managed to get a few points… I obviously couldn't be happier with the result. It was a competition to be won and that's it. I'm still coming to terms with everything. It's been such an incredible journey… Just the fact that nobody's ever won the Tour and then La Vuelta afterwards, it's incredible to be be able to do it. And obviously I didn't do it alone. It was thanks to an amazing team behind me, thanks to so much support from everyone, the fans, my family, my friends. It's just been an amazing few months and I want to thank everyone who has contributed to that. I've been fighting for this victory for six years and three years I've been standing on the second step so it's amazing to stand on the first step this time.”
